TBT: Elberta Beach Hang Gliding Heydays

Elberta Beach During the Hang Gliding Heydays

Elberta Beach During the Hang Gliding Heydays

Here’s a post I shared way back in November of 2010. Apologies to all of you with photographic memories! ;) 

Jim shared: 

Not a lot of beach that year (and the water was high), so there was not a lot of room to land! Then you had to hope folks would Get Out Of The Way! (And usually they did, as they were mostly hang gliding families or followers.) Taken at the Elberta beach on Lake Michigan in the late 1970s. 

Jim is no longer updating his Flickr, but definitely check out his Hang Gliding / Hang Glider gallery on Flickr for some awesome pics!

PS: Here’s shot of sailplanes in the 1930s on Frankfort Beach which is just across Betsie Bay from Elberta!
